Home Living : June 2nd 2009
4 HLS - HOME LIVING: SOUTH, Tuesday, June 2, 2009 Water wise LG Electronics Australia has launched its new water-saving laundry systems. The WT-H950 (left) has a 9.5kg capacity, a direct drive motor and a 4-star water-efficiency rating. The WD14030D (bottom left) is an 8.5kg front-loader and has a baby care and medic rinse. It has a 4.5-star water-efficiency rating. The WD14030RD (below) is a combined washer and dryer and has a large door for easier access. It holds 8.5kg for a wash and 4.5kg for drying and has a 4.5-star water-efficiency rating. HOMELIVING Just warming up The temperature is dropping and households should start preparing so winter bills won't blow the budget. EnergyAustralia's energy- efficiency expert Paul Myors says before heaters are switched on it's important to ensure the home is thermally efficient to minimise energy costs and greenhouse emissions. ''Stopping draughts and covering windows are simple and effective ways to keep heat indoors,'' he says. ''Installing ceiling insulation will also make your home more comfortable and can reduce your heating costs by up to 30 per cent. ''Underfloor insulation is an option for some homes, or a more cost- effective alternative is to lay rugs on bare floors. ''Window coverings such as curtains and blinds prevent heat escaping. Double-glazed windows also minimise heat loss.'' Draughts and unwanted air leakages can suck away the warmth, increasing home heating costs by up to 25 per cent. Try using a door snake to stop under- door draughts and seal doors and windows. One of the easiest and most affordable ways to keep warm is to pull on a jumper and socks.
